Hey, I have 200 dollars to spend on a bass, and I really want a new bass, Not only is my ibanez huge and heavy, Its come to my atention that the volume knob is dirty, and the tone knob just doesnt' work. I didn't notice it until I played a bass at the store. Turning the volume down produced a clean sound, unlike my bass. I asked my bass teacher if there was anyway to fix it, and he said yes but it would be hard. And I would need to take it somewhere, its not worth it to me. Anyways, I found a used Fender MIM for 200 ish dollars, and it was just nicked up. No big deal really. And I would slap a tort pickguard on it and that would be it. Or I could buy an SX Jazz Bass New and a hardshell case for it. For a little less than the Fender. Im leaning towards the fender just becuase of the name, im like that, so unless the SX is so superior to the MIM than im going to go for the fender. What do you guys think?
